That whistling sound you hear is the Saints' playoff odds continuing to crater; they fell another 11.6% after this week's loss to the Eagles, and they're under 50% for the first time since very early this season. New Orleans has now lost three straight games for the first time since 2016; the head start they had with their hot September is gone, and they're back firmly in the muck of the wildcard race. At this point, it may be time to turn to Taysom Hill under center; Trevor Siemian isn't getting it done, and what do the Saints have to lose at this point? -- Bryan Knowles
